I stayed up late last night to catch Ms. Lauryn Hill on a rare TV appearance on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Fallon has paid tribute to Bob Marley this entire week marking the 30th anniversary of the famous Reggae singer. Ms. Hill, mother to Marley’s grandchildren gave a rousing and beautiful cover of “Chances Are” and “Could You Be Loved.” Her performance was soul-stirring and her voice ever so beautiful and melodic. I was smiling ear to ear. I’m such a big fan of her music. Still looking forward to her comeback but in the meantime…

Ziggy Marley kicked off Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’s Bob Marley Tribute Week with a rousing performance of “Get Up, Stand Up” on Monday, May 9, 2011. His brother (Rohan’s) longtime mate, Lauryn Hill is scheduled to perform two songs on Thursday in a rare television appearance on the show. Other guests scheduled to pay tribute during the week include: Chris Cornell, Jennifer Hudson, Jakob Dylan, Lenny Kravitz, and Keith Richards. Richards of the Rolling Stones is not scheduled to perform, but his admiration of reggae music is well documented…so, you never know he just might!
